The SHS girls basketball team lost a few key players over the offseason following the 2017 season. Despite this, however, head coach Adam Morelock is confident that the Lady Cards will be more successful than last year.

“There’s more talent,” Morelock said.

The Lady Cards finished 5-17 in 2017, but Morelock is hopeful that they will improve their record by at least five or six wins for the 2018 season.

Some prominent returners this year are senior Ashley Raisor and juniors Kayden Casey, Lexie Green and Kyra Duncan, according to Morelock. According to junior Kyra Duncan, since the team has lost key players, leaders like these will have to step up.

Another potential issue, according to Duncan, would be staying healthy. Since the roster is already thin following the departure of a few players, the girls will have to push through injuries and try their best to stay healthy. In case of an injury, some players that could step in are junior Brynna Reynolds and sophomore Maddy Newhouse, according to Morelock.

The Lady Cards’ first game was scheduled for Nov. 1. at Lawrence Central which they lost in a close game, 55-53.

Their next game will be today at 10 a.m against Fishers at home.
